Abstract

This dissertation represents original, empirical evidence concerning the adoption of CSR practices and principles in the context of Least Developed Countries (LDCs) based on comparative case studies among selected companies in the Ethiopian brewery sector. In other words, the study can be considered as an original work that contributes to the knowledge of CSR studies from this part of the developing world where there is a dearth of regional CSR studies. Its theoretical contribution could be by way of extending CSR literature to less charted territories such as the part of the developing world where this study is situated. In addition, as the study utilized a novel dataset and implemented empirical methodology, this is also a valuable empirical contribution.
